Things I Love Thursday, April 23rd ’10


Vivienne Westwood is simply extraordinary, isn’t she?

Oh Mylanta, it’s time for Things I Love Thursday again!  This week has flown by quickly, and there are lots of wonderful things to be jazzed about.   Let’s not tarry any longer, shall we?

* Prancing around in the morning (and noon and afternoon and dusk and evening and midnight) to “Flawless (Go to the City)” by George MichaelBut you already knew that.

* Having a delicious potluck supper with good friends and then taking the first hot tub dip of the season.  It was definitely one for the ”ahhh, this is the life” kind of moment books.  Thanks to the heat and the water jets, I no longer felt my usual feeling of wanting to rip my entire spine out with my bare hands.  Um, hurrah!  There were even leftover cookies for me to take home.   To mix bakery metaphors, it was truly the icing on the cake.

* Gorging myself on chocolate-covered almonds.  They are one of my, admittedly, many weaknesses.  I friggin’ love it when school fundraisers roll around, because then my chocolate-covered-almond-eating is for a good cause, and I feel all noble and stuff.  Philanthropy in action, you know.

* Planning my trip to Toronto for the end of this month!!!!! Hurray!!!!  Some of my dearest friends who are scattered all over the globe are coming together for a reunion!!!!  I feel that there aren’t enough exclamation points in the world to express how excited I am!!  Alas, my trip will only be a whirlwind of a weekend, but it will an entire weekend full of shenanigans and quality bonding time.   I’m also looking forward to seeing friends whom I haven’t seen in the longest time.  (Whoa- oa-oa).   Hurray, Hurray, Hurrah. 

* Pants with elastic waistbands.  No need to explain here.

* Wonderful tales about faraway prairie adventures from my beloved cousin

* Cathartic writing and much-needed words of advice, humour and commiseration from my friends.   To steal a quote from my kick-ass and dapper friend Adam, my choice in friends is one of my very best qualities. 

Awwwww.  On that note, what things this week have tickled your heartstrings?  (I am pure poetry).

Cheers to you!

    I love that you began this post with Oh Mylanta.

    Haha- “Full House” is probably more ingrained in my head than my entire elementary school education combined!

    I started off saying that as a joke…but as I was typing it…I realized that it might actually be true…
